Patio for rollerblading


I'd like to design a patio, with a long path and then another patio at the other end of the garden, and I'd like to build it out of fairly smooth flat materials so my 6 year old son can practise rollerblading on it. I wondered if any would have ideas about the best kind of slabs for this? We quite like concrete ones as they last a long time and don't flake in frost.

I'm in the UK.

Have you thought of just having a slab poured and leveled? I can't imagine anything being smoother that that.

Best of luck!

What lindsaylew82 said.Blocks would move and I think not be so good to skate on.
The things I do are an evolution and I am always learning. My way is not the only way of doing things, and I may and will change the way I do things as I learn better ways. So any advice that I give is in that spirit.
